International Student News
August 8, 2018  |  Number 6, Summer Edition
Look Back & Look Forward to Fall 2018!
 
This is the last edition of our summer newsletter! We started this to keep you up-to-date with events happening around Kent State University, wherever you are. We hope you had a great summer and are ready to kick-off the Fall semester refreshed! Our weekly International Student Newsletter will start August 29. Until then, feel free to read previous editions below.


Additionally, this is just a friendly reminder that Fall Semester begins on Thursday, August 23 this year, which is a few days earlier than in previous years. This start date is necessary to accommodate Kent State's new Fall Break, which occurs on October 11 and 12. The new Fall Break will provide students with a few days to catch their breath and enjoy some rest and relaxation away from their books and classes. It's just another reason to look forward to this Fall Semester!
 
* New ESL students must arrive on campus no later than August 14 and attend New International Student Orientation on August 15.
